Thierry Mugler Angel Perfume - A Star is Reborn

Thierry Mugler Angel Perfume

Theirry Mugler Angel barely needs an introduction. I mean, if you don't personally own it yourself there's bound to be someone in your family or circle of friends that absolutely adores it. My Nanny has always been Angel's number one fan, and has received a bottle of the stuff from me pretty much every year since I heard about it. Yet somehow, throughout all those years I've never actually squirted it on my own skin.

So when I answered the door to the postman holding a huge, huge box, the last thing I was expecting to be inside was a bottle of my very own Angel Perfume. In fact, strike that - the last thing I was expecting to see inside was a bottle of my very own engraved Angel Gravity Perfume with a real life star to go with it. Yes, you read that right. Not only did the Thierry Mugler PR nail it with their personalised bottles - swoon - but they actually took the time out to name a star after me and a bunch of other beauty blogging gals. Mugler did good.

Now onto the fragrance! Angel by Thierry Mugler is an oriental gourmand fragrance, which basically means that it consists primarily of synthetic edible notes such as honey and vanilla. Yum. The perfume is a deep, rich, almost chocolately scent that lingers on the skin for hours, and - in my personal opinion - only seems to get better with ageing. Speaking of which, the Angel perfume turns a whopping twenty five years old this year! If you're tempted to pick up a bottle, now is the time to celebrate!

Oh, and if any of you are heading into space sometime soon, you can find me in star form at the address NCG22 in the Pegasus constellation. Please, no fan mail.

Why Happy Plugs are the best

Gold Happy Plug Earphones

Just a quickie today! Thought it was about time I showed you all something a little bit different than usual - a tech obsession. I feel like I've finally stepped into the 21st century by actually using my phone for something other than texting and Candy Crush - who knew a smartphone could be As you all know, I've also been heading to the gym a lot lately, to which these fellas have seriously come in handy. Sure, a pair of headphones might not sound like a big deal, but I'm seriously converted. There's nothing worse than doing your thang at the gym and finding your headphones popping out of your ears every five minutes - these absolutely do not do that. When they're in, they're in! Obviously, they look super cool too, and are even available in rose gold? Um, I'll take ten pairs please.

But of course, what most normal people use headphones for isn't the way they look, it's the sound, and when I'm watching Netflix or powering through the gym that's what I notice the most. It's so damn crisp! I'm not sure how I coped with 'normal' ear phones before hand, but I definitely see the fault of my ways now. So, about that rose gold pair..

Oh, hello internet! It's been a while (well, more like two days but in cyber world that's basically forever). I have no real excuse this time - life has just gotten away with me! It's now 3am as I'm writing this post and I'm only half way through my work that's due in for tomorrow - my own fault really. For once I decided it was a good idea to have a lie in...and then sleep through my alarm. Oops. Now I guess I'm paying for it!

Today's post was meant to be an oh oh tee dee, but right now my Macbook is pretty much screaming at me as I'm trying to render a video, so I'm not sure it could take any Photoshop action tonight. Alas, these shoes probably do deserve their own post purely for how long it took me to get hold of them - and because of how gorgeous they are of course. As far as I'm aware, they're still in the sale right now, so if you want to make your feet very happy I'd suggest you head on over now. Oh, they're in black too..

A brand new piercing?

Aurore Havenne

During the past few months my minimalistic jewellery collection has finally gotten some well-deserved use, and I've even begun piling on the gold hardware here and there. My latest addition is this little number, but I've even started contemplating a few more 'permanent' bits of bling - AKA a new piercing or two. Don't panic, I'm not planning one some sort of OTT hole in my face, but maybe a few new rings in my ears. The inspiration behind all this? Only five hundred re-pinned piercing pics and a basket full of studs on Fresh Trends. Should I take the plunge!?

It's not often that I dedicate an entire blog post to one pair of shoes, but I thought these babies deserved it. There's nothing I love more than a comfy pair of shoes that work with just about everything - apart from maybe grilled cheese and cheeseburgers, but that's an entirely different story. Despite my love of all things cheese though, I'm still going to the gym on a regular basis (high five for me), and I'm almost tempted to pick up another pair of these kicks for said athletic purposes. Failing that, I'm just gonna grab a pair in white. And then another ten colours too..
